Steve Godshall invited Mumbles and me to this. Unfortunately, neither of us can attend. (DAMN IT!!):beathead:bawling::beathead:

The date listed states "September 18, 2010". But, hey, what do I know; it could be wrong and outdated.

Best advice might be to call Jeff Putnam or Steve.
Sure wish I could have made it.

Many thanks Mark. Locally this is seems to be a 'well kept secrete. Out fishing with J D Jones this AM and he asked me if I'd seen your post (hadn't yet) and asked if I'd heard anything about the up coming event. Total news to me. This is a great local annual event that expands every year. Great casting/play water right there in the Park (all river left). Short wade out to the island across and away you go (also excellent summer run water).

Only thing you have to keep in mind is Fall Kings spawn just beyond the top of the island (they're a NO-NO to fish for/keep), but the darned things will take exactly the same type of flies you'd use for Summies. You could hook a 3# fish .... or a 30# fish!
